Using a TEditMask
Posted on 2002-05-21
I want to have a field in outlook that is in the format
The first part is an entryid of a contact item in outlook, which is always a set length, the second part is the contacts name.
I would like to have field control that only displays the name data and not the entryid data.
The question is can I do this with a mask, and if so, what would the syntax look like for the mask. I also don't want the entryid text to appear if the insertion point is entered into the field. In fact the contact name and entryid data cannot be entered manually, rather it will be filled from another form.
Is this possible with a mask, or do i need something a little different?
